    Just no white American-born centers drafted in the lottery.

    Just to be clear, if this trade happened, we certainly wouldn't be getting Holmgren, Williams (probably either of them) or Giddey. We'd get Dort and a shit ton of picks, plus filler (which OKC will have to cut anyway to get down to 15 players). The only reason OKC has to do this trade is because they LITERALLY CAN'T USE ALL THEIR PICKS and LITERALLY CAN'T KEEP ALL THEIR PLAYERS. So it would just be a canny asset-consolidation move for OKC (which probably not what Dame's ego wanted in the team that acquires him).

    Yeah….sort of

    No WABC in the lottery EVER!!!

    The only one I thought was worth a shot was Mason Plumlee. History is on my side

    Never should you draft a WABC in the lottery….EVER. My opinion, shared by others

    While Boeheim was at the Cuse, NEVER draft a Syracuse player in the lottery

    What did he win again? Black hole. Zero defense. Never made teammates better. Not who you win titles with

    That's why the Blazers need to wait.

    Also a stupid idea. If you are winning 60% of your games with SGA running the team, why would you want to trade good assets to take the ball out of his hands?
